As I mentioned in a recent post on my writerly blog I receive a few press releases and sometimes samples of foods and books and things to hopefully mention on my blog, A few weeks ago I received from Tilda Rice an attractive and useful infographic of handy BBQ tips, this is just a teaser - for the rest of it click here.
Then a day or so before we left on our hols *** I received a pack of their Limited Edition Barbecue Steamed Basmati so took it with me and contributed it to a meal my friend was cooking - sticky pork chops which were yum. I think she was pleased with it!
It is not my normal way to buy pre-cooked anything in general and probably not something like rice in particular but I can see that if you were that way inclined this would be a good purchase. The flavour is fragrant, smoky and spicy with fennel, chipotle, smoked paprika and my friends' 15 year old daughter Ruby thought she detected a hint of five spice. Mind you she is not just any 15 year old, she is a FutureChef 2013 finalist so may well be right.
Anyhoo Tilda Limited Edition Barbecue Rice has a warm complex taste and now I find myself looking at the other flavours in their range such as Coconut & Lime Leaf, Mexican Chilli, Lemon, British Curry, Egg Fried and Pilau.
In other news ...
*** I have fallen in love again - with the
Highlands and Islands. We had a superb time and I could wax lyrical
but instead I have started a new Pinterest Board of my photos here ...
Now I am home I hope to accumulate some new leftovers to play with and will report back asap.
